The Society of Animal Artists
The Society of Animal Artists is one of the pre-eminent associations of animal and wildlife painters and sculptors in existence today. Founded in 1960, the Society is devoted to promoting excellence in the portrayal of the creatures sharing our planet, and to the education of the public through its informative art seminars, lectures and teaching demonstrations. Some of the finest animal artists from the United States, Canada, Europe, Africa, Japan, and Australia are represented in the Society’s membership, which requires all applicants to pass through a juried process prior to being invited into the membership.

Over the past 40 years the work created by these artists has established new standards of artistic excellence and respect, helping animal and wildlife art to achieve a place of honor in the field of fine art.

Artist’s for Conservation
Founded in 1997 as the ‘Worldwide Nature Artist’s Group” by Jeffery Whiting – a prominent Canadian artist, author, biologist – the Group’s strength lies in its membership and represents a who’s-who of nature artists worldwide. To maintain the highest level of talent, membership is limited to 500 artists worldwide. New members are admitted by invitation only, through a juried process, and only as placements become available. The Group dedicates its resources to nurturing its world-class community of nature artists and leveraging this pool of talent to support its mission.
